I could now sit on the boot lid and it would tip me up. it opens much faster too. Thankfully I got one at a great price of 75 in these uncertain times. I would advise anyone who wants to sort this, don't waste money on new struts etc.. and look out for a 4E0827852H at a decent price.
I know there are various Nm versions, both my old and new are 164Nm, which I believe is one of the lower ratings.

New tilt sensor fixed it, so if anyone wants to make me an offer, feel free.
Might be interested! How did you diagnose the tilt sensor?
